Bus was convenient although a bit packed. We used it only twice to get to two destinations. If you don't really plan on stopping at many locations for a bit of time, this is likely perfect. However, if you plan on spending several hours at a location, it is a bit of a waste as the bus only runs from 8:30am - 7:30pm. If you plan on spending 3-5 hours in one area, it will get you to your next destination. However, the bus has it's last pick up around 6-6:30pm at many of the locations and unless you are lodging close to the final stop, it will be of no use. However, if you have a full day or half day to just ride and see things, this is probably for you. I wish that it would have longer hours to cover later times into the night which would be awesome.

The bus was so crowded people were standing in the aisle which made it very difficult to see the sights. I got the last available seat which was facing backwards, so what little I could see, was of no value. The audio system was unusable because the sound quality was terrible.

When we finally got to Bondi Beach which was lovely, we opted to uber back to our hotel which was much more convenient, efficient and had unobstructed views.

Good Tour. The quality and volume of the audio on the busses varies form bus to bus. A digital upgrade to the audio system would greatly improve the audio and make things much more understandable. Great views of all the major sites in the city. The drivers are a great bunch. If you book more than one person be sure to get individual vouchers printed. For some reason I had a voucher that only showed one person and since I did not have two vouchers I had to pay for one on the spot which was about 20 more than I prepaid on line. There are a lot of locations where to pick up the tour. You do not need to pick up the tour at the beginning. There are two routes, Red and Blue, and they over lap on a few stops. Jumping from one route to the other is not a big problem, Just make sure you are on the right route where you got on if you want to end you tour in the same location.
